Clinical Academic Position in Nanomedicine

Are you a medical inventor? Nanoscience provides unprecedented opportunities to advance medicine through technological innovation. University College London (UCL) wishes to appoint an outstanding, self-motivated individual who embraces this vision and will exploit the potential of nanotechnology. The appointment will be at Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor level and will be a joint appointment between the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) and the Division of Medicine. An Honorary Clinical Contract will be sought with one of UCL’s Partner NHS Trusts in the appropriate clinical specialty.

The London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) (http://www.londonnano.com) is an interdisciplinary and multi-faculty research centre that has recently been established on the UCL and Imperial College campuses. It draws together researchers from the fields of physical sciences and engineering with those from the life sciences and medicine. A key strategic goal of the LCN is to carry out research that has high impact on relevant areas of unmet medical need through the application of the tools and techniques of nanotechnology. The LCN interacts with various UCL NHS Trust-wide initiatives in translational medicine, including the recently funded Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cbrc).

We invite applications from candidates who have completed their specialist medical training; the clinical specialty is not specified. Full registration with the General Medical Council and acceptance on the GMC Specialist Register are requirements of this post. Overseas applicants will need to ascertain from the relevant Royal College that their clinical training would allow them to practise at Consultant level in the UK and be included on the GMC Specialist Register. Appointment to this post will be made on the terms of the Consultant Clinical Academic contract.

Basic salary on appointment will be in accordance with seniority level upon and, where applicable, anniversary date of transfer to the CCA contract. Any merit award or discretionary points, which may be granted on a personal basis, will be subject to agreement with the Hospital Trust and would be funded from NHS sources.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Tom Duke at the LCN (email: t.duke@ucl.ac.uk) or Professor Gordon Stewart in the Division of Medicine (g.stewart@ucl.ac.uk). To request a copy of the further particulars, please contact Nipa Patel (tel: +44 20 7679 0624; email: nipa.patel@ucl.ac.uk).

Closing date: Monday 29th June 2009.

We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within UCL at these levels. This is in line with section 48 of the Sex Discrimination Act and section 38 of the Race Relations Act.
